Friday, March 6th, 2020, 7:30 pm awards and movie details: A good old fashioned western, the film centers on Rango (voiced by Johnny Depp), a chameleon who accidentally ends up in the town of Dirt, a lawless outpost populated by the desert’s most wily and whimsical creatures. Rango, the less-than-courageous lizard, suddenly finds he stands out and is the last hope the town has been waiting for. Sheriff Rango is forced to play his new role and save the town from a developer’s water grab.
